The review has dealt with passports that have already expired and others which are soon to expire including a number of birth registrations and marriages. They will be processed in an electronic system to manila once they are brought back to Guam and will wait for their return after 6 to 8 weeks of processing.
Consular Auxilian thanked the Government of Palau and appreciates the support given to the Philippine community and hope to work alongside and extend more interests in the future. [/restrict]
